Illegal Immigrant Rescued From Park Backcountry

Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument

National Park News

On March 1st, rangers rescued an undocumented alien in a remote desert area within the park. A second undocumented alien approached rangers on backcountry patrol with an urgent request – his sister lay sick and unconscious in a remote location and needed help. The rangers determined that the man had left his sister about four hours earlier and immediately began a ground search with assistance from a Customs helicopter. Less than an hour later, they found her. Although unconscious, she soon awoke and told the rangers that she’d become ill two days before and was suffering from abdominal pain with nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. She was carried to a park patrol vehicle and transported with EMS providers to rendezvous with an awaiting ambulance. At last report, the woman was doing well and expected to recover without complications.  Both the man and his sister were turned over to the Border Patrol.
